WeDo Technologies, a worldwide leader in revenue and enterprise business assurance, provides software and expert consultancy to intelligently analyze large quantities of data gathered from a multitude of systems spread across an organization. The company helps businesses overcome or minimize operational inefficiencies and enables them to achieve significant returns on investment via revenue protection and cost savings. WeDo Technologies works with many of the world’s leading blue chip companies in the retail, energy, and finance industries, as well as 140 telecommunications operators from 80 countries.
WeDo Technologies worked with Oracle to benchmark and optimize its enterprise business assurance software, known as RAID, with Oracle Exadata Database Machine.
Oracle Exadata Database Machine enabled WeDo Technologies RAID Solution to target its enterprise business assurance software sales towards midsize customers in the telecommunications and retail sectors by delivering improved performance, lower storage requirements, and increased scalability. The company’s Enterprise Business Assurance RAID 6.3 software, running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, achieved a processing throughput of up to 1 billion call records per hour during loading enrichment and aggregation―reducing space requirements for storing detailed call data by 13-fold, when compared with raw data, and by 8x, when compared with Oracle standard compression.
Thanks to Oracle Exadata Hybrid Columnar Compression, which enables the highest levels of data compression and provides enterprises with tremendous cost-savings and performance improvements, due to reduced I/O, WeDo Technologies enabled users to keep detailed data records online for faster root cause analysis and generic data analysis activities. This capability allows telecommunication and retail companies to support faster decision-making processes, such as the ability to access detailed information on customer behavior, required for a successful enterprise business assurance activity.
"Our customers expect our RAID solutions to be highly available. This is why we design our solutions to work with Oracle Database technology. With engineered systems, such as Oracle Exadata, we expect to continue on this path and adopt the best technology that meets our customers’ expectations. WeDo Technologies has proudly used Oracle technology since 2001," said Miguel Alves, product business solutions manager, WeDo Technologies.
To complete this project, WeDo Technologies worked with Oracle Portugal to procure and optimize the environment to meet its objectives and integrate it with WeDo Technologies’ existing architecture.
“Oracle’s Edinburgh Oracle Competence Center provided the required environment and skills to complete the implementation in six weeks. It was intense work, during a busy calendar period—which included New Year holidays—but the teamwork was fantastic, and the excellent results we achieved in our Oracle Exadata proof of concept gave us great confidence in the solution,” Alves said.
